Forget Rita by Paul Killebrew

Winner of the 2003 PSA Chapbook Fellowship

Forget Rita
by Paul Killebew, selected and introduced by John Ashbery.

Edition: 500 copies of the winning books were printed by the Prolific Group and designed by Gabriele Wilson.


Killebrew buttonholes us like the Ancient Mariner, urging our complicity in his dark tale of anxiety and/or intimacy. We seldom learn exactly what happens, but we get a strong sense of how it happens-the telling of the story is the story.

—John Ashbery
